SIG Convenor: Prof Daniel Donoghue


UAV systems are becoming established as platforms for remote sensing activity both for High-Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) missions and for low-altitude lightweight fixed-wing, helicopters and blimp / balloons / microlites.

The benefits of UAVs mainly lie in the ease, rapidity and cost of flexibility of deployment that lends itself to many land surface measurement and monitoring applications.

The past 5 years have seen a steady flow of high quality peer-review papers and research theses on remote sensing from UAV platforms for innovative applications. High altitude UAV platforms offer opportunities for innovative atmospheric science (primarily) while small, low-altitude systems are ideal for monitoring of crops, coastal algal blooms, riparian and rangeland vegetation and even for photogrammetry and laser scanning.

Upcoming SIG Event: Small Unmanned Aerial Systems for Environmental Research

Dates: 28th-29th June 2016

Location: University of Worcester, UK

Description: We invite you to attend this two-day conference of the RSPSoc’s UAVs SIG which will bring together academics, practitioners and those with an interest in working with small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) for environmental monitoring and research. This conference follows previously successful events held in Liverpool (2015), Exeter (2014) and Worcester (2013), and will include keynote addresses (speakers to be announced shortly), oral presentations, interactive poster sessions and an exhibition of sUAS service providers.

Topics: Oral presentations and posters will cover a range of environmental topics, including but not limited to:

  • Terrestrial applications – such as geomorphology, natural hazards, glaciology, archaeology, ecology, conservation, terrain assessment, agriculture, forestry, geology & geophysics
  • Hydrological applications – such river science, hydrology, coastal & marine
  • Atmospheric applications – such as aerobiology
  • Practicalities of data collection using sUAS (including licensing and flight regulations)
  • Processing and analysis of sUAS data (including photogrammetry and structure from motion)

Guest Speakers: further details will be made available in due course.

Abstracts: Email 300 word abstracts to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 15th April 2016, including author names and affiliations, contact details and preference for oral or poster presentation. Confirmation of abstract acceptance will be provided to authors in early May 2016.

Registration: Opens early April 2016. Fees will include attendance, conference materials, all refreshments and a sandwich lunch on both days. Please register in advance of the conference, as places will not be available on the day.

Fees: Standard rate: £90 / Student rate: £65

IJRS Publication Opportunity: All accepted conference papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Remote Sensing. More details will be made available on our website in due course.

Sponsorship Opportunities:  Would your business benefit from exposure to our delegates? We anticipate the attendance of 70-100 delegates at our sUAS for Environmental Research conference. Opportunities are available for exhibition stands and conference sponsorship.Contact us by email for further details: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Remote Sensing from small unmanned aerial systems, University of Worcester 4th July 2013

Description: The use of remotely sensed data collected using small, low altitude unmanned aerial systems or vehicles (UAVs) has seen significant growth in recent years, for a wide range of scientific applications. UAVs offer many benefits including flexibility and rapidity of use, low per-flight costs and the ability to collect ‘hyper-spatial’ data. Within this emerging field there is a need for the exchange of knowledge, theory and practical experiences, with a view to developing best practise and encouraging use in new application areas.

The aim of the workshop is explore the potential of these exciting platforms for research and management through facilitated discussion on data collection, analysis and application in a range of areas.

Guest Speakers: Dr Patrice Carbonneau (Durham University); Dr John Wells (West Lothian Archaeological Trust); Nigel King (Director at QuestUAV Ltd)
